The pottery from Jâm: a medieval ceramic corpus from Afghanistan

Gascoigne, Alison L. and Bridgman, Rebecca (2010) The pottery from Jâm: a medieval ceramic corpus from Afghanistan Iran, 48, pp. 107-151.

Record type: Article


This paper presents preliminary results of field recording of ceramic material from J?m, Gh?r province, Afghanistan, a site which has been associated with F?r?zk?h, the summer capital of the Ghurid dynasty. A fabric series and catalogue of forms is presented, in addition to the results of some initial scientific analyses. Comparisons have been drawn with corpora from other sites in Afghanistan, Iran and Central Asia, and the significance of the material is discussed in light of the regional and chronological significance of assemblages from this area.
